We are now 4 days away from Thanksgiving and it is officially fall here in South Texas.
Last night I had to turn my oven on and get back in the kitchen. I am currently preparing for a turn of events which I will be documenting like crazy here on my blog. It is taking a lot of prep and thought but I will update you guys on what is to come soon.
These healthy takes on a chewy sweet treat will be a beautiful site on anyone’s Thanksgiving spread. Share the health this Thanksgiving.
